Toon Boom to Illustrator opacity issue on PDF when 'Export Drawing to PDF'
on Nov 9, 2011 at 10:51:49 pm

When I 'export drawing to PDF' from Toon Boom Studio 5.0 (Build 5.1.13834) the opacity is lost on the PDF. When I then open the PDF in Adobe Illustrator I get the PDF Warning ‘The document contains PDF objects that have been reinterpreted: An unknown shading type was encountered’. The appearance of the element now has an opacity of 100%. I am working on Mac OS X v 10.6.8. Is there any way to preserve the opacity information during the first export to PDF from Toon Boom. Presently I have to just correct the opacity manually, but this is not possible where there are multiple 'layers' on the original drawing as I can’t seem to select the layers behind and the breakdown of the image has too many elements to do them all individually from the layers menu in Illustrator. For complicated drawings, it’s a nightmare! Thanks
